You read that right. Peanut butter on a burger.
And it was epic.
The whole burger thing came about after I purchased the meat grinder attachment for my mixer. There was no way that the attachment was going to sit around the house for more than a week without being used.
We picked up some beautiful beef at Whole Foods on Sunday and Big Guy got to grindin’. It was cook knowing exactly what the meat looked like before it was ground. The key is to make sure that the attachment and the meat are very cold before you begin the process.
The burger patties themselves were simple. Meat. Salt. Pepper.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Building the burgers were rather simple, too. And the ingredients aren’t that crazy. It’s just the combination that’s crazy.
The buns were Udi’s gluten-free buns. Totally delicious but sometimes a little dry.
On top of the buns, Sriracha sauce followed by cilantro.
On top of the cilantro came the perfectly cooked burger.
A spoonful of peanut butter on top of the warm burger plus bacon.
I ended up adding more Sriracha.
The peanut drizzle.
That is where it’s at.
I know! So bizarre.
I can’t even handle it.
But it was so incredibly delicious.
And to make myself not feel so bad about this decadent burger, a salad on the side.
In the salad mix: bok choy, cabbage, cucumber, basil and cilantro. The dressing was a mix of lime juice, rice vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce, salt, sesame oil, honey, garlic and ginger.
Talk about a flavorful dinner.
Our taste buds didn’t know what was happening.
But they liked it.
